. >> good to see you today. this survey up to multi month high necessary all four of the largest euro area countries, just in the rate of decline, easing in france, easing in spain, situation stabilizing in germany. what does that mean for investors? >> we get two flashes, we get the flash and the final. so not only are we getting an indication of the progression month to month, but we're getting this sort of update. so the market feels they have momentum. since july, really, it's the commitment from mario draghi to do whatever it takes to save the eurozone. the uncertainty that dominated the fist part of 2012 was all about what happens if the currency situation collapses. i think this positive momentum that we've begun to see in all the major indices, which is when i will they're showing below 50, this shows confidence is returning in both the manufacturing and services sector across the larger economy. it's telling us that the directional bias is the more positive one. people are committing further out in terms of their own anticipation expectations. so the detail, if you dig down into i

development, and them you've got drawing a line in the sand doing whatever it takes to defend the euro, and to me, that was a game changer. not too many game change everies, but when he said that over the summer, hey, think about putting money to work in italian bonds. they have attractive yields particularly relative to treasuries, and poland, it's got an attractive yield, a strong currency out there. not as attractive as italy right now, but there's money allocated to it. david: jack, when you talk about italy, poland, and mexican bonds, i used to cover mexico in the 80s, and 90s, and i remember defaults there. to me, it sounds more like junk bonds than fixed income? >> well, you know, i make the comment that, you know, they are not your father's emerging markets. there's been a huge development over the last ten years or so in the the developing world right now, and mexico is a classic example of that. david: i have to challenge you, jack. >> sure. david: mexico had terrible crisis with the drug war, and that eventually effects investments in mexico of the there's a lot of developme

of the euro and to some degree make monetary policy tighter over here. we can quickly look at the bond space. italy did go to auction as we continue to see reasonable demand for peripheral debt. the paper is selling off a little bit, but still 4.17%. investors showed up to bid on the two-year zero coupon and the five-year inflankz flagz linked bond. italy and spain continue to front load. forex, though, telling you more of this story, which is that interestingly fluff, we're seeing kind of a risk off attitu attitude. the same has been the case for loony, which now people are starting to talk about in parity with the u.s. dollar. the dollar/yen, down about 0.3% to 90.62. the euro/dollar, 1.3446. so even though it's difficult, the u.s. dollar, guys, has been performing a little better over the last couple of weeks helped by renewed growth prospects. it's one reason why a lot of people are focused on the see kweter, that chatter over the weekend about it happening could put more pressure on the greenback. back to you guys. >> kelly, thanks so much. next time, you should fly over. >> what happen

. good morning. >>> becky, good morning. i wanted to show what's happening across the euro stock 600. a generally quiet session. we're down .3% so far in trade this morning. that might have more to do with something happening here at the bottom of the index. the absolute dogs in the europe stock 600 this morning are the oil services. we can show you what's happening. look at the saipem shares once we get through the borses. saipem shares down in the range of 35%. this comes after they took a couple of hours to open this morning. let me show what's happening. 35% for this company. it's europe's biggest oil services provider by market cap. last night came out and warned about the profit outlook it's seeing for 2013. now itself's looking at revenues -- sorry, of earnings of 750 million euro, down from 1.7 billion that the market was expected. this is based on review of contracts based mainly in the leaf, nigeria and -- the middle east, nigeria and algeria. order backlogs, more worry about that. delay of major contract. bottom line, this company comes out in barclay's, for example, calli

yet. >> all right, rebecca, i have two for you. number one is that i'm reading that the euro crisis this year is going to go on the back burner even though nothing's been settled. it just seems like people aren't as concerned about it. so, i guess that explains the euro's move. and then, this news out of japan that kelly's all -- talks about all the time. >> she's teed up on. >> she's very teed up on that. and reading some of the stuff that abe is getting accomplished, it is different. i mean they're going to do -- they're going to -- >> they're going to out-fed the fed. >> exactly. and you know, they haven't had -- do you remember the last time they've had 2% inflation? >> twice in the last two decades. briefly. one on the back of a tax increase. >> just really brief. >> they've flirted with 2% and that's come back -- >> you think they can orchestrate that? >> i'm dubious for now. but if you have a better u.s., a quiet europe, a better china, there's more hope relatively speaking that you could get enough global momentum, because japan at the end of the day, still is a very open ec

the average for the entire 20th century. unemployment across the euro- zone countries has hit another record high, 11.8%, in november. the european union reported today the jobless rate rose more than a full percentage point from a year earlier. greece had the single biggest year-to-year increase, jumping seven points to 26%. across the e.u., some 26 million people were out of work. wall street was down again today as the market marked time, waiting for corporate earnings announcements. the dow jones industrial average lost 55 points to close under 13,329. the nasdaq fell seven points to close below 3092. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to gwen. >> ifill: we return to the u.s. consulate attack in benghazi, the only known suspect held in connection with the incident was released today in tunisia. his attorney said he was freed because of a lack of evidence. the attack, which killed u.s. ambassador to libya christopher stevens and three other americans was seen by large crowds and captured on security cameras, but the culprits have remained elusive. libyan witnesses have r

euro skeptics warn seven are in recession. it's possible that germany falls into a recession as well. so they aren't out of the woods yet. don't get complacent about europe. did japan just start a currency war? announcing a full on assault on inflation. that's likely to weaken their currency and a lot. making it more difficult for the u.s. and europe to increase their exports. where does it end? what kind of unintended consequences could it bring? the third possible derailment, china. not the pace of their growth which has recovered. china worries more about political risk because the country has new leadership for the first time in ten years. and if the country is going to keep growing, they must do some very controversial reforms. that's going to lead to some kind of internal distress as investors try to hold on to power. and the final wild card, iran and its nuclear ambitions. there it's hard for the markets to measure what could happen. >> okay, michelle. thank you. a group of bipartisan senators meanwhile have agreed on a proposal to overhaul immigration laws. let's get to eamon
-fledged member. using the euro and everything else. i guess it makes it less likely that they'll adopt a common currency. if they're thinking about leaving the union. >> absolutely. no, there's a widespread sense of relief that britain isn't more closely tied in. if you leak at the performance of the economy, the fact britain has its own central bank, it can pursue monetary policies or policies appropriate for britain and not have to worry about other member states certainly is being taken as a sign of relief. and there's very little sentiment certainly for joining the euro now. although i will say the bank of england numbers fight they're not happy with how strong sterling is. they think currency should be weaker and it could help performance going forward. echoing the currency that we're starting to hear this year. >> no talk about becoming the 51st state which they probably have wanted to do for a while given how we excelled after we broke off. they could come back into the fold, perhaps joining the u.s. and adopt the dollar if they really wanted some -- any talk of that at this point? would
